List of Magic Items for Sale at Gon Orta’s Castle

I created this list for when my PC’s visited Gonn Orta’s Castle a couple of weeks ago. Thought it’s not the full rewrite up on Gonn Orta I was after ( it may come later and its concepts underpin some parts of the list.), but in the spirit of sharing I thought id share this list of items and agendas as it may help, inspire or just save people bit of time.

I have also in a spirit of generosity described things in a away that works best for RQG, but they should translate into most Gloranthan Systems very easily.

A real Place called Giants castle… But I could use it for the approach from the Pavis side.

Prices are not included as money works differently in everyone else campaigns, and I think for the big exciting stuff Gonn Ortas Agneda is more than cash, and barter will be the name of the game.  Smaller items with be traded for cash without question.

  1. Just want to say how handy your site is for me as I return to RQ. I will be running a game for my group using cutdown rules and striving for a saga flavored game, your blog has given me tons of inspiration, thanks for that!
